LOT 6

1973 Triumph Stag

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: YAB 30M Chassis No: LE24037UBW MOT: Exempt Fitted with a new soft-top in 2018 Previously benefitting from a new brake master cylinder and an anti-theft system Current V5C and Stag handbook Introduced in June 1970, the Triumph Stag was conceived as a luxury convertible sportscar to rival the likes of the R107-series Mercedes-Benz SL. Based around a two-door monocoque bodyshell (stylist Giovanni Michelotti had physically shortened a pre-production Triumph 2000 saloon in order to fashion the initial prototype), the newcomer featured all-round independent suspension (McPherson strut front / semi-trailing arm rear) and a well laid-out 2+2 cabin. With some 145bhp and 167lbft of torque on tap from its bespoke 2997cc SOHC V8 engine, the model was reputedly capable of 120mph. Despite being in production for seven years, during which time 25,877 cars were made, a mere 9,500 or so are thought to have survived. Finished in White 'YAB 30M' has been in the ownership since September 2016. Displaying some 121,000 recorded miles, in recent years the car has benefitted from a new brake master cylinder, an anti-theft system and a new soft-top in 2018. Around 2022 the car had a water trap fitted in the fuel line, due to previously having a suspected fuel supply contamination. Currently, not required but still fitted, the vendor suggests it might be better removed as it could be restricting the fuel flow and the engine can cut out. It is offered with a V5C and a Stag handbook. For more information, please contact: James McWilliam james.mcwilliam@handh.co.uk 07943 584760
